I passed perhaps one walker and one biker during the entire hour, but had the company of a friend by phone.
Nathan Amado, a trainer and creator of Original Human Movement, had recently completed his own milestone trek — a 27 km hike for his 27th birthday. We were just a couple days away from co-teaching a webinar on deep breathing techniques for efficiency, power, and relaxation.
I joked that the online workshop would contribute to my recovery from the walk, but feared that more likely I would be incapacitated if I actually managed to complete it.
